Kacie, she said "I think parents need to beat the crap out of their kids" and then she went on to say that her father put her through a wall and that's the only reason she's still here. She did make mention of how the whole spanking thing is becoming too PC, but considering that her dad put her through a wall, she doesn't appear to have a good grasp of what spanking actually is according to her statement. I still give her the benefit of the doubt because she wasn't a mom then and she is just a mom now, but it is very possible that she was serious when she said that parents should beat their kids.

You know, I never really had an opinion on smacking before my daughter was born. I didn't intend on doing it, because my observations led me to believe it didn't work. But that was really the extent of my feelings on it. It was only once I carried and birthed my baby that my views intensified. Looking at a child you created changes things. I hope it does for her.

I love Pink. A local radio station posted those photos of her post-baby body on their FB with a caption asking how long it will take her to 'snap back'. I commented saying 'who cares', and that it was refreshing to see a celebrity be proud of her baby body and not hide away like a leper until they regain their body. Many MANY other mothers commented, blasting them for perpetuating the insensitive expectation that a new mother should focus on losing weight when she should be immersed in caring for her baby. The photo was eventually pulled, and reposted with a much kinder caption :)

As for her spanking comments last year, as a non-smacker I obviously disagree. But I think we need to recognise that her childhood was far from 'average'. She was a heroin addict at 15. Am I justifying her claims, or the fact her father clearly used extreme physical force to control her? No. But I can understand why her perspective is skewed on this topic. Hopefully her feelings on this will adjust now that she is holding that sweet baby in her arms.

I don't think she meant actually beat the kids. She means it's ok to spank. Hell, I tell my daughter I'm going to beat her sometimes but it doesn't mean I'm gonna just beat the living shit out of her. It means I'm going to spank her.

I love Pink. I think she is awesome and she is extremely honest about what she thinks and I think a lot of people don't like that about her.

even though she thinks all parents should beat their kids and that she credits her being beaten as what "sobered her up"?

"I'm quite positive she's smart enough to know the difference in spanking and beating though!! just cause she's had an abusive childhood doesn't mean she doesn't have the common sense to know the difference"



Just because *you* want to believe, or think she's smart enough, doesn't make it so. And, are you kidding me? Her mentality is classic for someone who has been abused. I'm not surprised by what she said, BECAUSE of the way she was raised.

I've always enjoyed Pink, and her music. I was a little put off last year when I saw that interview/video of her views on discipline, but like everyone has said, she deserves the benefit of the doubt. I hope motherhood has also made her see the error of her thinking ways.

Maybe it wasn't even her. But she's the one who sings "Raise your glass," right? Anyways, I'm just kind of bitchy today. :) Pink is probably not someone I would use as a role model in mothering, but I do think it's great that she's not trying to perpetuate the stereotype of the flat belly and perfect body 10 minutes after giving birth!

I agree she deserves the benefit of the doubt considering her interview was last year and she's now a mother. As for her refusing to quit drinking...I haven't heard anything about that, but even that's speculative. She could be talking about the occasional glass of wine or something like that...you just don't know for sure.

Time will tell ladies but lets not fail her so fast..lets have a little faith.:-P

I am not a huge fan of her music etc.I did not see that video before to be honest.



Saying parents should beat there kids and go on to say what her dad did is implying to do the same, is it not.I don't think that's cool.I can see why some take it light hearted and some do not.I don't think its cool.She could of thought it out a lot better.As many follow her etc



It was said and the kind of mother she will be is to be seen also.I just wish her the best, like i would any new mother.

On the beach after only five days?!. THATS awesome I was still on my couch :). She likes great and for her spanking comments, that was before she had her baby. Weve all said stuff that could be taken out of context. Im very sarcastic at times and people think im being serious. And as far as looking to someone for parenting advice. Isnt that why we are here on this website. you can learn from a bad example just as well as a good.

Unless you know her personally, you are kinda forced like the rest of us to listen to what she says...and I love poetry and metaphor as much as the next lady but that wasn't what she was saying...sorry (or I should say, if she was trying...which I doubt cause she's pretty awesomely well spoken) she failed miserably.

That being said...I love everything else about her. I think she's intelligent, she's honest, she's gorgeous. I can't totally fault her on something she hasn't done yet....I just hope she changes her mind on what she has said she intends to do.

im one hell of an openminded person! if i get anymore openminded, it'll spill out! i get it plenty! I see it as by her father "putting her through a wall" sobered her up to real life. what she was doing was going to get her no where, and at the same time what she was being put through was wrong. she got out because of that, she's used it as her muse and look where its gotten her today! You learn from it, and use it! Just listen to the words in the songs of her 1st album!



sorry, i just dont take things at face value. sometimes i take things with a grain of salt, sometimes i look for a deeper, truer meaning.

I think Kacie isn't really watching this video or isn't being open minded to what she's actually saying..lol

It is my hope that she will change her views on spanking now that she is a mom, but it remains to be seen.

Kacie, she was being candidly interviewed and made a very bold, ignorant statement about how spanking is becoming too PC and that parents need to "beat the crap out of their kids". I know plenty of people that joke about beating their kids as well, but in the video she further explained how her father put her through a wall and attributes that to her still being alive and functioning as an adult. What are you not getting?

FFS people!! seriously!? i hear all the time (and even said it myself) that people need to beat their kid(s)! and anyone with half a brain has enough common sense to know its just a saying for SPANK and not literally beat

And i know quite a few nonspankers who even know the difference!

"just cause she's had an abusive childhood doesnt mean she doesnt have the common sense to know the difference."....that's what we're hoping for, but as evidenced by her statement "I think parents need to beat the crap out of their kids"...it's not looking good.

i know what she said, i watched and listened. Im quite positie she's smart enough to know the difference in spanking and beating though!! just cause she's had an abusive childhood doesnt mean she doesnt have the common sense to know the difference. IMO, what she said was telling us that she knows what NOT to do. just cause she said she lived, doesnt mean she thinks its OK to literally beat a child

Yeah, she clearly said parents should be the crap out of their kids. It all remains to be seen but, would I be shocked if she did, - no, she's already clearly stated that kids need harsh discipline.

Anyhow, I think what irked me about that interview a while back is that like it or not, she is a role model for other people. She needs to think before she speaks and unless she's knowledgeable on a subject she needs to STFU.

People taking her "parents should beat their kids" literally, is just dumb. NO, she doesnt mean literally beat their kids, she means spank. and dont start harpin on "spanking is child abuse" some people think it is, some dont, but its FAR from beating and "being thrown through a wall". You do what works, and sometimes timeouts, toys/privileges being taken away, and lecturing doesnt work!

I'm going to give Pink the benefit of the doubt on the spanking front. She's a new mom and we ALL know that we can talk a blue streak about the things we'll do when we become parents, but saying it and putting it into action are two totally different things. And considering this interview was done pre-baby, I'll wait and see if she was just blowing smoke or in fact, does truly believe that kids should be beaten. I've always liked Pink and it's no surprise that she's taking her post-baby body in stride :)

[deleted account]

I also believe we don't always parent our children how we were raised.She had it rough but this time around it might not happen like that.I do wish her all the best and i understand 100% what you are saying Cathy.Its a very fair comment.I like what you all have said.:-)

[deleted account]

Yep she looks like us average Joe's.Which is something you don't see many celeb's wanting us to see.There busting there balls exercising etc for the 6week magazine spread.
I agree with her beating video, as in i agree with why she thinks this way.She could of worded it better and not of said ALL parents need to do this.As all parents do not have 15year old heroin addicts as kids.I don't mean that rudely but she feels strongly because of her experience but a bold statement like that is not cool.Other than that.I like shes not hiding like the other celebs.That Is mainly my point in posting this thread.:-)

I'm pretty sure that she'll change her tune about "beating kids" now that she has one of her own. There's lots of things people think they'll do or won't do before they actually have kids.

I don't get the fuss lol she looks like any regular Joe after they had a baby... surprise. Maybe she actually parents her kid instead of handing them to nannies so she can work out 6 hours a day :S

I hope so too and she does have empathy for animals as a PETA activist so there might be hope for her but the cycle is hard to break , I do wish her all the best.

Good on her although it blows my mind that being normal is news and I still cannot shake that creepy and very sad interview she did ( that Laura posted) I just hope she has changed her tune ......no child deserves to have the shit beaten out of them or their heads put through a wall.

she actually used the phrase "beat the shit out of them" and "threw me into a wall"

So long as we're all cool with that.
